  • Mission:
  • The mission of 3xM is to promote the Proclamation of the Word of God through modern media (television and internet). 3xM stands for “More Message in the Media”.

    3xM is unique in her approach to unite Christians from different denominations in one production organization. These TV-programs proclaim the Gospel but also deal with issues in society, like social injustice, poverty, hiv/aids, corruption.

    From Senegal to Indonesia, thousands and thousands of viewers are engaged by the programs produced by 3xM. In their own environment they watch relevant programs, bringing them in contact with God in order for their hearts to open to His Love.

  • History:
  • 3xM was founded in 1980 by the EO (Evangelical Broadcasting Association) in The Netherlands in order to proclaim the gospel also outside the Netherlands. In 1983 3xM became independent. In 1991 we visited a Christian Media Conference where we were asked to stand in three compartments, one for print, one for radio and one for television. The compartment for print was half full, radio was overwhelmingly overfull and for television there were only ten people. So it was noted that the additional value of 3xM was in television work. Today this is still so, but the use of new media has been added to that.

    Television is strong in influence, awareness, information and entertainment. It is less suited to allow people to decide directly. In the same period the production was shifted to foreign partner organizations and they were made responsible for the local programming. That results in culturally relevant Evangelical programs, for example in Africa a program about the relationship with in-laws and in Central Asia a report on the kidnapping of a bride. Also our efforts to bring Christians of different churches in one local production organization makes 3xM unique. When the local Christians speak with one voice, this delivers a strong testimony that unites with Jesus and His prayer for unity (John 17). Because Christians go together to their national television stations and governments to ask for airtime, they stand a better chance to receive free airtime as they are seen as representatives of a group in their society.
